Victory for Iran -Hegemony Over the Arabian Peninsula-UPDATE

Houthi Shia rebels in Yemen

Iran has thrown  a lasso around Arabian peninsula with Houthi Shia takeover in Yemen.  Friends of ours  here in Pensacola have two serving US Marine Captains. One of them was in charge of  Marine Security for our embassies in the Middle East.  He called home to say that he was in the last group 10 persons that  vacated the US Embassy in Saana, Yemen, He told his parents in a phone call of the circuitous trip to the airport in Yemen's capital evading Houthi checkpoints. The flight took the group to safety in Dubai. Yemen is now a failed state that will likely devolve into sectarian war between the minority Houthi and the divided majority Sunni.  It also marks another failure of this  exemplar  of the Obama  'no name' counterterrorism strategy.

Saudi Arabia's fences on its northern  and southern borders may become the equivalent of France's Maginot Line that failed to stop  the Nazi blitzkrieg in 1940 that saw the demise of Third Republic. The Kingdom has the largest number of  IS foreign fighters  who will constitute a fifth column upon return to the Wahhabist realm.  That gives Iran virtual control of Iraq, Syria, Yemen, plus Lebanon with Proxy Hebollah.  Then  there are restive majority Shia in Bahrain and oppressed Shia sitting atop Saudi Arabia's oil fields in the eastern province on the Persian Gulf. Some argue that Iran may have even been complicit  fostering the rise of ISIS despite the alleged hatred between  radical Islamist Salafist and Apocalyptic  Twevlers in Tehran.   If President Obama's quest for a nuclear pact with the Islamic Regime in Tehran occurs on March 24th with the P5+1 final agreement, Iran becomes a nuclear hegemon threatened the region, America's ally Israel  and the West. Remember that agreement excludes ICBMs that may be capable of covering Europe and beyond.  Yesterday  Uruguay arrested a senior Iranian diplomat  alleged to be involved in a possible repeat in Montevideo  of the Iranian sponsored 1992 Buenos Aires blast at the Israeli Embassy.  Obama's   'Strategic Patience"  document released Thursday amounts to capitulation and appeasement of Iran, the Muslim Brotherhood, IS, Talaban and AQ. To say nothing of  his failed Russian reset with Imperialist Putin in the Ukraine and  failed pivot to contain China's saber rattling in East Asia  He even changed the wording of his original war declaration against IS  from "degrade and destroy" to "degrade and destroy".  He is worse than British PM Neville Chamberlain at Munich in 1938 that sold out pre-war Czechoslovakia. At least Chamberlain brought Sir Winston Churchill into his cabinet after the declaration of war against Nazi Germany on September 3, 1939  as First Lord of the Admiiralty, a prelude to Churchill being asked by King George VI to form a government on May 10,1940 following Chamberlain's resignation. Obama and  many Democratic Senators and Representatives deplore the proposed speech  by  Israel's PM Netanyahu  on the dangers of  Iran and radical Islam before a Joint Session of Congress on March 3rd at the invitation of US House Speaker John Boehner. If that does occur then the leader of America's only democratic ally in the Middle East ,who is said to speak in Churchillian cadence, will like the fabled UK wartime premier, have a third opportunity to present his prescient views.
